HUG - here for all audio enthusiasts

INTRODUCTION- PLEASE READ FIRST TO UNDERSTAND THIS FORUM!

"This Harbeth User Group (HUG) is the Manufacturer's own managed forum dedicated to natural sound, realisable by controlling the confounding variables between tthe microphone and the listeners' ears.

For example, the design of and interaction between the hifi amplifier and its speaker load can and potentially will alter the sound balance of what you hear. To reproduce the sounds captured by the recording microphones, as Harbeth speakers are designed to do, you would naturally select system components (sources, electronics, cables and so on) that do not color the sound before it reaches the speakers.

Identifying components for their system neutrality should, logically, start with the interpretation and analysis of their technical, objective performance, as any and every deviation from a measurably flat frequency response at any point along the serial chain from microphone to ear is very likely to cause the total system to have an audible sonic personality. That includes the contribution of the listening room itself.

HUG specialises in making complex technical matters simple to understand, aiding the identification of audio components likely to maintain a faithful relationship between the recorded sound and the sound you hear. With our heritage of natural sound, HUG cannot be really be expected to guide in the selection, approval, endorsement or even discussion of equipment that is intend to introduce a significantly personalised sound to the audio signal chain. For that you should do your own research and above all, make the effort to visit an Authorised Dealer and listen to your music at your loudness on your loudspeakers through the various electronics offered there. There is no on-line substitute for that time investment in a dealer's showroom.

If you desire to intentionally tune your system sound to your personal taste, please consider carefully how much you should rely upon the subjective opinions of strangers. Their hearing acuity and taste will be different to yours, as will be their motives and budget, their listening distance, listening loudness and listening room treatment, not necessarily leading to appropriate equipment selection and listening satisfaction for you.

Alternatively, if faithfully reproducing the sound intended by the composer, score, conductor and musicians over your speakers is your audio dream, then understanding something of the issues likely to fulfill that objective is what this forum has been helping with since 2006. Welcome!"

    Re: Monitor 30 with LFD Integrated Zero mk3

    WB, I can concur with that. My SHL5s, and so presumably the M30s also, have clearly shown the tonal differences between a Quad 909, a LFD Zero III and a Lux 505U. The differences have not been huge, but very clearly discernable. One of the things I love about my Harbeths is that they clearly reveal differences in the rest of the system, but without really spotlighting them.

    I have learnt over recent months how much the amp affects the overall musicality of the system. Not everyone agrees for sure... but my experience anyway. Both the LFD and Luxman are very musical sounding, albeit in different ways.

      I have to agree this..I do have same experiences...Harbeth by default is truely plug and play speakers..she do able to tell your the differences between brand A, B, C, etc source/amp sound characteristic.

        M30 and LFD amp

        Hello,

        I use my m30's with the LFD NCSE amplifier with excellent results. I also used the same amp with SHL5's with good results, but I much prefer the m30's in my room. I love my lfd amp, I traded mid level Naim seperates to get it. I feel the m30's compliment the amp perfectly, with a midrange fluidity to die for.
